I hate to start another camels in the clouds thing, but I'd like to know what the shiny object is on the coast of Niku.  The first picture is the enlarged google earth view, the second picture shows some context.  I wondered if it might be part of a more recent wreck of some kind? Or is it something left over from the british evacuation back when?  Or a shadow and my imagination?  Thoughts?


Here's the link to google earth and this location

great research work, I would have assumed with all the documentation of the other ships logs that have been obtained the bushnell and even the New Zealand survey would have been obtained. I know we have some information on them but apparently not all.

Maybe the 'forum' template/process could be made to handle some conversions on the fly? ):


Yes, if someone with the proper programming skills wanted to write a plugin for Simple Machine Forums, it "could" be done.


I worked on vastly simpler scripting projects for myself.


Nothing in my experience of writing code makes me want to to volunteer to add this wrinkle to the Forum.   :-X

Here's my (crude) USS Bushnell "1939 Movement of Ship" doc in pdf form. I made some minor spelling, symbol, and bolding changes.

This will complete the list of the USS Bushnell crew on 31 December 1939.
I think I have the previous quarter's Roll, 30 September 1939, with the Change Sheets, but would have to do all the finding and converting of its' pages.

USS Bushnell Muster Roll docs cont. .
All crew names, service numbers, ratings, dates of enlistments (this can be misleading as crew often re-enlisted while on tour and then their date becomes the re- one. So you might find a Chief listed with a few months service  :] ):

Here are the US Bushnell Muster Roll, coversheet, and Crew Recapitulation sheet document pages for 31 December 1939. There are also "Change Sheets" that I did not convert, mostly rank/rate changes for crew and such, want them just ask.
Converted to manageable jpg files, original Fold3 pdfs on request.

Per the forum 4 page upload limit this will take a few posts (and Captcha hoops, aarrgg).
